Let us know. Do a review and install with pics. It's good to know people input on affordable products.

i'd like to see the install pics as well, but i'm not sure about the need of a short throw shifter. i mean you can only shift as fast as the syncros will let you. i must be missing something, maybe someone can fill me in.

i have a megan shorty in my car, i dont have any of the install pics(it was installed during my swap) but it has made a decent amount of difference in the throw, but u must change out the ****! if not it looks like a giant shift **** on a small pole! im happy with it though, and it wasnt that hard to change out, i could prob walk someone through it if need be. tha hardest thing i found to be was getting the old shifter keeper brackets off, but other than that it wasnt that bad(ive done way harder things)

where there any side affects of installing the shifter i.e. excessive vibration?

i have MR shifter. sorry but u cant beat 35 bucks.
the new shifter cap end that goes in the tranny melts soo use the original one from the stock shifter. u have to give it a good tap its a tite squeeze. after that no problem and its definitely alot better the stock throw."thumbs"

never heard of mr shifter. but if $35 is what it retails for i'd be worried about it snapping in half on me.
